• Fund rewilding schemes on Hampshire council land
    Rewilding schemes have been successful in the UK and with the study and upholding of the schemes, even more so. Rewilding is an important step in tackling climate change and biodiversity loss which has been affecting Hampshire county, it allows for the natural growth of spaces so that nature can thrive in it once again. There are many unused Council owned areas such as brownfield sites or unsustainable spaces that could be used for rewilding and so we are calling for Hampshire county council to put these spaces to good use during a climate and ecological emergency through specialist rewilding schemes. We need the community support, it is so important to have schemes like this in place to provide space for animals and plants that are rarely available these days due to human take over. Support this campaign today to start change!

  • Strictly limit discharges of raw sewage into UK waterways
    It is critical for the environment, as well as for the quality of life and sense of local amenity for all UK citizens. Discharging raw sewage into rivers and coastal waterways is also a significant health hazard.

  • We Want Action on Cleaner Bridges
    If residents do not express how strongly they feel about these issues, the three parties responsible will continue to pass the buck and there will be no appropriate action to tackle the existing risks to health and safety.

  • Get the government to stop funding in fossil fuels and to invest in true green energy souces instead
    The current plans and accounting methods used by our government to meet the challenging targets for 2030 and 2050 are more blah blah! and greenwashing than they are real plans to achieve a carbon neutral future. Comparisons with other countries in this scenario are unhelpful as we "export" our carbon footprint and pretend to be leading the world in cutting emissions when the truth is far from this. We need a proper plan which clearly outlines HOW we are going to make progress and WHAT we are going to spend on it.

    Some of the reasons why this application must be refused are:- • Visual Impact of a building the height of a 12 storey block of flats with two 28 Storey high chimneys on the Arun Valley and South Downs National Park • New Houses or Incinerator. 1500 houses are planned close by – they are not compatible. • Local road network is unfit for the lorry movements generated • Potentially Harmful Emissions • Noise and Light Pollution • Approx. 275,000 Tonnes of CO2 generated per annum • Energy produced is neither green nor renewable • Incineration significantly reduces recycling rates INCINERATORS ARE A CLIMATE CHANGE DISASTER In a few minutes, this video explains why so-called “Waste to Energy” Plants (Incinerators) are a Climate Scam https://youtu.be/gg4iN5sbuc8

  • Help Bedford Tackle Plastic Pollution
    We live in a plastic world. It’s an extraordinarily useful, versatile, cheap material. It’s everywhere - and it is a growth industry. One in ten barrels of oil is used to create new plastic and production is set to soar in the next 5 years ... contributing massively to climate breakdown. But together, we can make sure we kick our addiction to avoidable single use plastic, and change the system that produces it. That’s why we are part of the national network of Plastic Free Communities, all working on a five point plan to tackle single-use plastic where we live. We need you, our local council, to join us and support us on this journey. It starts here and it starts with us.

  • Help Forest Row Tackle Plastic Pollution
    The world is addicted to plastic. It's viewed as a useful, versatile, and cheap material - but it comes at a serious expense to our planet. 1 in 10 barrels of oil are currently used to produce new plastic, resulting in serious emissions. And yet, despite facing the harsh reality of climate breakdown, production is set to soar in the next five years. Plastic also contributes to serious ecological degradation: it pollutes natural ecosystems and kills 100 million marine animals per year. All for the convenience of a cheap material? Together, we can break free from our addiction to avoidable single-use plastic, and change the system that produces it. For the sake of all future generations and beings on the planet. That’s why Friends of the River Medway are part of the national network of Plastic Free Communities (as run by Surfers Against Sewage), all working on a five point plan to tackle single-use plastic where we live. We need you, our local council, to join us and support us on this journey. It starts here and it starts with us.

  • Sign the petition to make sure the Environment Bill protects Bees and Pollinators
    Pollinators are essential to a healthy countryside and agricultural production, but recent pesticide use has caused a reduction in the overwintering success of honeybee hives, has driven 40% of wild bee species from large areas of the countryside, and has contributed to butterfly declines. This ecological damage reduces pollination services and crop yields. The current pesticide approval process does not protect pollinators. In 2010 the Government concluded that pre-approval tests for pesticides would not protect pollinators, but the UK has yet to introduce any new tests to help ensure that future pesticides are pollinator safe. Current approval tests for pesticides only look at short term effects on Honeybees. While the law says that pesticides that cause unacceptable harm to the environment must not be approved, if new chemicals are approved without adequate data then a blind eye is being turned. Risk assessments of pesticides must be independent and scientific, and the public must have the opportunity to participate in this important environmental decision making. The ‘Protection of pollinators from pesticides’ clause will achieve these outcomes and help to save bees and other insects. The Environment Bill was amended by the House of Lords to include a clause that directly protects our bees and other pollinators. Clause 75 will ensure that the long-term effects on bees and wild pollinators are carefully considered before pesticides are approved for use. We're calling on the government to adopt this clause, without the need for a vote in parliament.

    TREES ARE THE LUNGS OF THE PLANET. They help the planet to breathe and we need action NOW. The earth needs a trillion NEW trees. The idea is SIMPLE, AFFORDABLE and HIGHLY EFFECTIVE. By planting this volume of trees we can: - significantly improve air quality absorbing much more Carbon Dioxide across the globe - increase biodiversity - protect nature and wildlife - improve flood prevention - help reduce the impact of major climate events - AND HELP THE PLANET BREATHE BETTER. Waiting for global agreements and innovations takes far too long. Getting countries committed to this can START TO HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT RIGHT NOW.

  • Recycle or stop the use of polystyrene plastics in Bristol
    Time is ticking! We must stop producing so much waste before it's too late. Polystyrene is one of the least recycled plastic types and can easily end up in the rivers, seas and ocean. From there, it travels up the food chain into dolphins, turtles, whales and even humans!
